Cayenne has long been used by the ancient Mayans and Aztecs as a spice and medicine for treating mouth sores and inflamed gums. Most happily, they would blend it with cacao and make hot chocolate with cayenne. I highly recommend this method of introducing this powerful antioxidant into your diet!
High in vitamin A, C, potassium, manganese, and a compound call capsaicin, which is known for its ability to boost metabolism and improve circulation….we’re talking reduce belly fat, improve heart health, and ease arthritic pain…this wonderful warming spice can support your health in unsuspecting ways! (It’s great for soothing sore throats and laryngitis too!)
